Hahahaha. I admit it was a stretch from uranium on ebay to how hard it is/was to find lead-topped cartridges in recent years, and prices have severely increased on both ammo and bullet components - if you reload.  But Bananas?  Who knew?

or how about this for confusing..bananas are radioactive!

Ron,

Supposedly, the lead (Pb) we find/mine today, from which we make car batteries and jacketed bullets, started out as uranium 238, some 4 billion years ago, but decayed to non-radioactive lead in all that time.

HOWARD.....huh!?

Steve,

Meanwhile, decayed, naturally occurring, non-enriched uranium = lead (4.46 billion year decay cycle) seems to be getting harder to find.  No wonder they are using depleted uranium in projectiles.  Apparently, the half-life is lots shorter since fission (nuclear power plants) "eats up" the more radioactive 235U within 238U.

I sure didn't.

Did any one realize that you can buy Uranium on eBay?

Thank you Gary, just happened to find that one and it did look really good. I am quite positive, and of course having some materials on hand, you could construct something like this to provide shelter for yourself or your family.

In fact a good friend of mine, got hold of a large shed somebody did not want anymore. It cost $100 to move, needed some minor repairs, he insulated, and reroofed, put in a few more windows and a better door. He even built a porch off the front. He installed a composting toilet. It has no electric, but is next to a creek. All that for about the same price.
